British actor Tom Holland appeared on the main stage on Saturday at D23 in the middle of an ugly studio fight for the rights to his legendary Marvel character Spider-Man. For days now, headlines have been making headlines over the controversial battle for the hero's cinematic future, after Sony Pictures was no longer willing to disburse Disney in exchange for the president's Midas touch and producer Marvel Studios Kevin Feige, a significant proportion of the future To offer profits.
It was no surprise to see Holland at the biennial congress near Disneyland Convention Center in Anaheim, Ca. In addition to Chris Pratt, he co-leads the original animation "Onward".
In the film, Holland and Pratt play elven brothers with opposing personalities. While the two of them are close to their mother, who is known as Veep star Julia Louis Dreyfus, they both steer their teenage years after losing their father at a young age.
Disney Studios also unveiled a new poster for the film and a first look at the characters in action. In silence, Holland's character is seen with a magic wand that seems to cast a magical beam.
The 23-year-old Holland played Spider-Man in numerous films produced by Marvel Studios, both as stand-alone films by Sony Pictures and the Disney-published series "Avengers." Variety reported this week on the controversial, months-long struggle to maintain quality control at Marvel Studios while still releasing independent films at Sony.
